Man enters plea in fatal crash
BEDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A 50-year-old man has pleaded no contest in a crash that killed two teenage siblings as they walked near a roadway in southeastern Michigan.
The Monroe News reports that a judge accepted Raymond Reyome’s plea on Dec. 14. He is charged with two counts of reckless driving causing death. A no-contest plea isn’t an admission of guilt, but is treated as such for sentencing.
Reyome of Erie Township is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 7. He faces at least 11 years in prison as part of a sentencing agreement.
Police have said 13-year-old Justin Haun and 16-year-old Alyssa Haun were struck July 4 by a pickup that left the edge of a roadway in Bedford Township, about 50 miles southwest of Detroit. They were pronounced dead at hospital.
